An editor at the LA Times "improves" a story by lifting a paragraph whole cloth from a NY Times story that is to be published the same day. Story here.
UPDATE: That should be a Washington Post story, not a NY Times story. The confusion is based on the fact that the paragraph is about a NY Times story.
ANOTHER UPDATE: I scoop the unofficial L.A. Times watchdog blog, Patterico's Pontifications, here.
